Did you know…
Since the legal voting age was lowered from 21 to 18 in 1972, the voter turnout rate among 18-24 year olds has steadily declined. In 1972, 50% of 18 to 24 year olds voted. By the 1996 elections only 32% of young people in that age group turned out at the polls. Turnout among this age group in 1998 was below 20%.
In 2010 the youth (18-29) turnout was 20.4% when the entire percentage of registered voters in Broward County who actually voted was 40.99%. We can and must do much better. Democrat or Republican. Click to know the Difference.
